From Yahoo!:

I’ve got great hopes for this season. I’ve read it and it’s fantastic,” he told us. “You’re going to love it. It’s my favorite so far.”

One major new character addition this season is bad boy Oberyn Martell, aka the Red Viper. It was announced last month that Chilean actor Pedro Pascal had nabbed the role, which sparked controversy among fans.

“Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin defended the decision; and Harington, too, fully has faith in the casting.

“I haven’t seen him in costume yet, but I have had dinner with him a couple of times. He’s a lovely man,” Harington explained. “He’s going to be brilliant. It’s an amazing character and quite the story line. You’re going to enjoy it. [Fans] won’t be disappointed, Pedro Pascal is the man for the job.”

While Harington was tight-lipped on what Jon Snow is going to be up to next year, he revealed where he would like his character to go.

“Well I do know where he goes…” Harington teased. “I’d like him to go and rescue Arya, but I don’t think he’s going to be able to. I’d like to see him collect Sansa, Arya, and Bran and just take them to the wall or something.”
